Planning a wedding can be its own full-time job. You need all the help you can get. If you are researching bridal vendors, the Utah Bridal & Wedding Expo is a great resource. At the Expo, you will be able to see and sample the wares of bakeries, bands, gowns, catering, officiants, florists, and every professional you will need to make your wedding perfect. The Bridal and Wedding Expo is scheduled for November 9, 2019, at the Salt Palace Convention Center. The Expo will run from noon to 5 PM.
The Bridal Expo
Visitors to the Bridal Expo will be excited to learn about new concepts for their weddings and will be able to bring something special to their wedding days. Attend with your groom, bridesmaids, or parents and find the best options for your wedding. There is a broad range of price points featured, so don’t worry if you are getting married on a budget.
If you are an exhibitor, you will be happy to learn that 7.3 out of 1,000 Utah residents are married each year. Utah is also a popular place for destination weddings, taking advantage of the religious background and the beautiful natural scenery.
You can register for free passes online. If you wait, tickets will be $10 at the door!
Getting to the Salt Palace Convention Center is easy. From Salt Lake City International Airport, take I-80 east. It is an easy 15-minute drive from the airport to the convention hall located in the historic district of Salt Lake City near the Temple of Jesus Christ and the Latter-Day Saints. Public transportation is also available on the 704 bus line departing from the Airport Station.
If you’re coming in from out of town, you’re in luck. The area around the Convention Center has many fine downtown Salt Lake hotels. The Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Downtown is just 10 minutes away from the Convention Center by public transportation, or it is an easy 14-minute walk directly to the center. The hotel has a contemporary design and features tasty on-site dining.
The Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City is another great choice. This hotel features a fun, eclectic vibe. Its on-site restaurant, Bambara, is a destination in itself. And it’s centrally located in downtown Salt Lake City.
